I live in Central Massachusetts in the United States--a wonderful area for nature, art and culture. Using a compact camera, I celebrate daily life found here in a variety of local landscapes throughout the changing seasons.

  2. Such freshness! I have only sprouted mung beans and lentils. I must give alfalfa a try.

      1. Yes we have a resident troop of vervets in our neighbourhood and they visit our garden every few days. The troop is relatively stable in size – about 20. This year we saw about 5 new babies but their survival rate is very low, and many adults also meet untimely ends, sadly. That monkey-alarm calling is a senior monkey and he is one of my favourites – there are a few individuals that are distinctive enough for me to distinguish them. I am very fond of the monkeys so I am pleased to know that they touch you too. Sadly, many people dislike them intensely as habituated monkeys can enter houses to look for food. Of course there are ways of preventing that but some folks feel that the monkeys must “learn” and we can just carry on regardless!
